The Invitation!

Here is the Scrapbook Page that I made using the invitation that I designed for Kristy & Justin's up-coming wedding. This was a very quick page as most of the work was done, since the actual invite is the vocal point.
The cardstock is Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White, the stampset used is Stampin' Up! Baroque Motiffs and In the Spotlight. The invitation is a different fold using a criss cross closing to the middle with the flower and the crystal brad adding enough weight to keep the card closed.

Justin's Gram & Pop!

The other part of Justin's family is my mom and dad. When Justin was born, my dad didn't feel that he was old enough to be a grandfather or grandpa; my mom suggested being called Pop and he liked that! So my mom decided if he could be Pop, that she could be Gram.
Justin is also the only grandchild on my side of the family. How lucky Justin was growing up as my mom and dad only live about one mile from our house. So Justin could always find an excuse to go and visit Pop and Gram. There was always chocolate chip cookies waiting or a ride on one of the horses.
I figured that someday these pages will give Justin and his future family special memories that I have captured in these pages.
As always, thanks for stopping in, I appreciate it.

Justin's Family

A Scrapbook is all about preserving the memories, the adventures, your life. And even though this scrapbook is all about Justin and Kristy, I just felt that I had to devote a page to each of their families.
This first picture is Justin's family, his mom and dad, or rather me and Jim. Justin is an only child, but an only child that was never treated like one. I remember Justin asking me once when he was probably four years old why he didn't have brothers or sisters. I told him that he did, that Magnum (our then beagle) was his brother. He was happy with that and has treated every beagle in our family just like he or she was a brother or sister. Thus the top picture of Maggie, Jim, Me, Justin and Tucker was so fitting. I wanted a picture of Jim and Justin clowning around and a picture of just me and Jim, which was taken by Justin when we went camping a couple of years ago.
As always, thanks for stopping in. My thought for today:
May each day of your life know the warmth of the rainy sun, the fresh crisp rush of the wind, and the rainy joy of the seagulls flight.
